Actually I asked this question because it has happened to me. However I just got my offer report from my insurance company and the ACV wasn't affected at all. They went on the cars condition prior to the accident. I suppose the answer here is it depends on your insurance company.

It depends on why it was totaled. If it's cosmetic damage that totaled the car (like a shallow sideswipe) of course. If it's structural, like frame damage, maybe. If it was in a flood, it's probably not a good idea to fix it since quirky electrical problems will haunt the car forever. If it is repaired it would still carry a totaled title but it can be qualified with the brand 'totaled/reconstructed' on the new title.
